The newly formed Killington World Cup Committee is excited to announce the release of a limited number of premium VIP packages for the women’s alpine skiing World Cup race that will take place in Killington, Vt. on Nov. 25-26, 2017.
The proceeds from the sale of the new VIP Premium Packages offered by the Killington World Cup Committee–a new non-profit fundraising wing of Killington Mountain School–will fulfill two objectives. First, they will support ski programs throughout the Northeast through a grant application process focused on improving competition and training infrastructure, and by investing in new and existing programs that aim to increase youth participation in winter sports. Second, they will support the women’s World Cup at Killington by helping with the hospitality fees costs for the competitors. The “request for proposals” for these grant applications will be available November 1, 2017 through the KWCC website.
The Silver Premium Packages start at $5,000 and include VIP tickets, an invitation to the VIP party at the PEAK lodge Friday night where the 1968 U.S. Olympic team will be honored, USSA apparel and Killington lift tickets. The Gold Premium Packages include the same Silver Package benefits plus additional VIP tickets as well as complimentary housing options during the event and access to the exclusive Coaches’ Knoll viewing platform.
“Leveraging the World Cup in this manner and increasing access to winter sports competition for youth as well as for disabled individuals will result in more life-long participants in winter sports throughout the Northeast, a win-win for snow-sport enthusiasts and ski areas,” said Phill Gross, KWCC founding committee member and USSA trustee.
The premium packages went on sale at 9:00 am on Sept. 20 and are available exclusively through the Killington World Cup Committee. Interested fans can also contact Lynn Boynton at [email protected] All packages have limited availability and will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
